Wine, Women and Song

So I was having a wee glass of wine and I started thinking about my musical influences ( as you do!) when it occurred to me that most of my musical heroes are women. When I was a teenager I loved the female singers of my parents record collection -- Janis Ian, Melanie, Linda Rondstat, Emmylou Harris etc. I am still in awe of these amazing song writers and marvel at their ability to connect to my emotions. I am hugely inspired by many other female songwriters I have encountered since, but have to pay tribute to my very first female musical influence and that would be my mum, Gil McWilliams. Here is a clip of her singing with The Irish Rovers (the baby is Helen!) many moons ago................ Gil is singing 7.36 mins in.
